Being a vegetarian doesn’t mean limiting your options or compromising on flavor anymore, certainly not in Detroit. From Asian to Mexican cuisines and soul food to pizza, some of the city’s best restaurants offer delicious and satisfying vegetarian and vegan options. These are not the city’s 10 best strictly vegetarian restaurants, but, in our opinion, some of the best restaurants for vegetarians.

Inn Season Cafe

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$

Also in Royal Oak, the Inn Season Cafe is a long-established haven for vegetarians, offering a vast array of organic vegan and vegetarian dishes with an international flair since 1981. Its inventive world cuisine ensures there’s an option for everyone, complete with burgers, pizza, stir-fry, and Mexican fare—all made with the finest seasonal and locally grown ingredients.

Seva Detroit

Restaurant, Bar, Juice Bar, Contemporary, $$$
Seva opened a second location in Detroit after years of success in Ann Arbor. Its eclectic, 100% vegetarian menu features a range of familiar world cuisine, with everything from spaghetti and tempeh-walnut meatballs to pad Thai, and from artichoke po boys to burritos. It also has a juice bar and a range of indulgent, house-made desserts.


Restaurant, Asian, $$$

Down in trendy Corktown, this Asian noodle house has a bevy of creative offerings for vegans and carnivores alike. Soups, rice, and curries are all available vegan, with roasted and sesame tofu bringing the protein. For dessert, don’t miss the vegan strawberries and cream with vanilla-tofu custard, and don’t forget the extensive sake menu.
